Eamon Kelly

Evanston Democrats,

I am proud to announce the Democratic Party of Evanston is launching of the Schakowsky Campaign Organizer School to bring some of the brightest stars in Illinois Politics and grassroots campaigns to Evanston to teach 20 young progressive democrats how to organize political campaigns.  Interested?  Know someone who is?  All welcome but young people particularly encouraged to apply.
This is a defining election for progressives. 2018s successes where historic. Flipping the house and taking back state governors but we need to do it again. Trump needs to go and we need to flip the Senate. Republican’s might have been unprepared for the organized progressive energy behind the 2018 Blue Wave but we know they we’ll be ready this time.

Our Goal: Graduate Evanston Democrats to assume entry level organizing roles in 2020 campaigns (in either as a volunteer or paid basis).
